Hands and veins very swollen and painful. My hands and feet often swell (due to stimulants?) but this is extreme. Veins on hands bulge more than feet

Discuss w/ provider: The provider who prescribed the stimulants needs to know about this symptom and consider if it is a side effect or something else.

Call ASAP and best wishes for resolving this. ...Read more

Is it normal to have bulging veins in your feet, legs, arms, hands if you are skinny and fit for the most part? I'm 24 year old male 158lbs 5"11

I have buldging hard veins in the tops of my hands and top/bottom of my feet made worse by physical activity (eg biking) and also worse at night?

Hard to say: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them in person. Veins get bigger with more use. They can scar if they are injured, but thin athletic people who use their limbs typically have veins that are big and stand out without anything being wrong. ...Read more
